Saturday once again and Obscure Metal Song O' The Week
again. This one comes from Queensryche
, and band who we really think a lot of around here, and a band who has been around for a long time. I could pick any one song of Operation Mindcrime and it would work, but I'm going to go off of Rage For Order
and the single Gonna Get Close To You
. It's a song about stalking, straight up. I like the way the guitar sounds in this one, and even though Qryche has all the credentials of a hair metal band, they have always been separated by their intense song writing and social conscience. This one is from way back in 1986, so it dates us all here, but we quit being young a long time ago (with the exception of Josh, and his Red Jumpsuit Aparatus fetish.) Crank this one, and re-visit the album if you can. It's a straight-up rocker!!
